Having refined their 12.11 beta drivers, AMD has recently released their Catalyst Software Suite Version 13.1 update. This WHQL update includes all the performance improvements found in the previous AMD Catalyst 12.11 Beta 11 update while resolving a variety issues for Windows 8 and Windows 7 users.

The Catalyst Control Center has also gained a new design for its 3D application settings page, which is designed to allow uses to adjust their 3D settings individually per application.

Here are the direct links to the various drivers:

AMD Catalyst Software Suite 13.1 for Windows Vista/7/8 32-bit

    The 3d settings were obviously always there.

    The difference now is they are split off under a separate page instead of being under the "gaming" heading as before. the article doesn't make this at all clear.

    In fact, I'm not even sure this was worth mentioning unless it was miraculously missing from the 12.11 beta driver, as this offers no additional benefit over the "old" catalyst.

    Ohh that's interesting, is that what's causing what I can only describe as "hitching" when framerates are otherwise stable? Reply

    There is a little friction on the web for the frame-latency type of testing, but they are doing a good job showing exactly why it is worthwhile.

    Frame rates average over a second, which is why they aren't helpful at identifying the "hitches" you mention.
